So as I alluded to a few pages pages back I ordered my Callaway driver and received it yesterday.

I received:
45.5 stock when I ordered 44.75
Did not include a heavier weight because they never had the correct length so it was playing at D4 as I requested
Lamkin Grip was stock and not +1/32

Pretty crappy of a build by Callaway. I called and they offered to build me a new driver or pay for the club work to be done locally. I chose locally as I know it will be done correctly. All I asked was for a 16 and 20 gram weight to be mailed to me so that I can dial in the best SW for me.

That sucks. Looks like a good result though. I’ve had similar experiences with all the other OEMs and most provide excellent service. I will say that I was always impressed with Callaways help when I had issues with their clubs in the past.

Heres where it gets interesting. I brought my driver to my club builders today and he cut it down to 44.75 and built a grip up to +1/32 as I wanted. I asked him to measure the SW and it came in at D5.1.... I took off the weight again to check and its definitely the 12 gram stock weight.

Now Im interested to see if its just a heavier head they chose for me or if it was hot melted any? Standard 45.5 is supposed to be D4 so 44.75 at D5 is really interesting.

Strange indeed. I play mine at 45" and had to add lead tape to get it to D4 with a nearly 80G shaft

Is it the SZ version? If so, did you check the front weight to see if they put a heavier weight there instead of on the slider?

Sounds like you got an extra Flashy head!

What's the consensus on ball speed with this Epic Flash? 1-2 MPH more than the Rogue?
